Rule 045 | Angry People Have The Most Wrinkles

The dishwasher drama continues when Gerard gets mad about the botched installation of The Pepper's latest appliance. The Peppers both turn a bit red in the face, but thankfully Jessie has a skin cream for pretty much everything.

Don't forget to leave us a review on iTunes, and send us a tweet if you have something to share while you listen!


QUICK BITES:

  • Gerard gives some good advice for how you should react if anyone ever throws a trash can at you.

  • When it comes to arguing, Jessie likes to get into it and then get past it while Gerard usually prefers to just get out of the room.

  • The Peppers break their own rules and talk about the unresolved fight that they had the night before recording.

  • Our introverted and extroverted natures make for different communication styles, particularly when processing through a conflict.

  • We decide to keep the newspaper swatting to a minimum after remembering from Episode 27 that we DO have neighbors who like to call the cops.

  • Gerard and Jessie learn the difference between being an argument escalator and argument elevator… Stay tuned for Jessie’s conversation about this with Liz Bohannon on our spin-off mini-series called The Perfect Wife. (Coming Thanksgiving 2017!)

  • Hear our original skincare conversation about sunscreen in Episode 34, and then listen in as Jessie makes yet another request for Gerard to start taking better care of himself.

  • The Peppers recognize the flaws on their skin as giving them a nice healthy dose of humility. (And an opportunity to rub medicated cream on each other.)

  • Gray hair and aging are revisited as mortality is discussed... Jessie gives a quick rundown of her skincare values, and professes the benefits of her favorite vibrating tools. (Clarisonic MiaNuFace, and Quip!)


TRIGGER QUESTIONS:

  1. When was the maddest you have ever seen your spouse?

  2. In arguments, are you more of an internal processor or a verbal processor? How about your partner?

  3. What part of aging are you most looking forward to? Least excited about?
